Light is a spectrum. Why limit yourself to a single hue? Read Lore

“Project Borealis's onboard systems contain a pocket energy matrix capable of changing its alignment in a near instant to mimic the spectral frequencies of mapped energy types. The science is groundbreaking, but volatile. We're lucky to have this first, stable model available for active combat use. More will surely come, but for now, the Borealis is the only one of its kind that I trust for real world application.” “Sounds dangerous.” “If the internal matrix misaligns for any reason during its shift between outputs—damage, wear, a flaw in its production—the resulting feedback could [REDACTED].” “That bad, huh?” “If your definition of ‘bad' includes the [REDACTED] then yes, ‘bad' begins to describe it.”

This Sniper is abhorrently underrated. I got this weapon 2 days ago and I absolutely love it! The power of a sniper with the ability to swap between energy types on command? And the perk changes done to the weapon. No-one talked about this weapons buff.

Kind of nice just to laugh at Match Game activities. A bullet for every shield type.

For its Impact class, Borealis is surprisingly well-rounded stat=wise. Better in PvE than PvP; its bonus damage can be stored for later as well!

One of the best snipers for 950/980 NF. Super Underrated.
